    A must for wiskey lovers.
    This is the one for all whiskey lovers. Apparently, this is the biggest whiskey collection in the southern hemisphere. True or not, they have more whiskeys than you can ever taste. A bit on the expensive side, but you will be able to sample whiskey and gin for that matter till you can't take anymore. A must for all that love whiskey.

    Amazing first whisky tasting experience
    If you love whisky, Wild about Whisky is a must visit in Dullstroom. Whisky, gin and tequila tastings are on offer. Tastings range from R85 to more than R4,000.00, depending on the tasting experience you choose. The staff is very friendly with high energy and very informative. They also have snack platters, which goes perfectly with the drinks. 10/10 recommend this experience.

This one lady with the black hair is SO Incredibly rude... A friendly waiter asked us to hang out one sec while he prepares a table, she INSISTED they are full and that we should look at the very visible sign stating they are full. She rudely pointed at the sign as if we are idiots and basicly told us to just leave. We've been here before and loved it while she was not around. She ruined it - will never be returning again. You ma'am, are doing this business disservice. If I could give you as an individual zero stars, I would.

As a Scotsman visiting Dullstroom, Wild about Whiskey was not to be missed.

I was immediately taken aback not just by the number of whiskys ( note the spelling no "e") but so many Scottish varieties that I had never heard of.

I opted for the "Across the Whiskyverse" tasting with samples from Scotland, USA, Ireland, Israel and India and was not disappointed in my choice, each with their own distinctive tones and flavours from spicy to fruity to mellow and creamy.

I enjoyed each and every one of the whiskys but my favourite was not as I might have expected, the Glenlivet 12 year old, but a mildly peaty Paul John Bold from India which would rival many an Islay malt.

The highlight of the visit however was not the whiskys themselves but our host and whisky expert Pascal who took time to explain not just the origins of the drink but answers to individual whisky questions, entirely unrelated to the tasting itself. He was a star.

Amazing experience and ambiance. Did some tastings and enjoyed a lovely snack platter. Bought couple items from the shop as well and very reasonably priced. A must stop if you enjoy whisky or gin.

This place is great. They have so many options and they offer great ideas depending what you are looking for. The prices are also reasonable - much better than Joburg. And there are chocolates that are delish as a bonus.

We whisked in for an unexpected tasting – like one does whilst in Dullstroom!
Our friends opted for the chocolate and whisky pairing whilst my husband and I both enjoyed some servings of our favourites. The service was five star and the pricing very affordable.The in-tune serving staff even picked up on my favourite whisky mentioned and offered tow versions of it!
Strongly recommended for a leisurely afternoon – just appoint a driver!

Very friendly and informative staff. I loved every minute. Tasted great whisky. They even had something for the ladies with the chocolate and whisky tasting. A must stop if you in the area, do not miss. I would make the trip to Dullstoom just for Wild about Whisky .
